This print is based on The Family: A Proclamation to the World. I love the way this document lays out God's laws and purposes for family relationships in a world where things definitely need to be clarified.
Rather than hanging all nine paragraphs on the wall and making it hard for me to focus on specifics, this print focuses instead on the nine more important words:
"Successful marriages and families are established and maintained on principles of faith, prayer, repentance, forgiveness, respect, love, compassion, work, and wholesome recreational activities."
I saw a similar one on the Etsy shop Kiki & Company, but after the owner was listed as "on vacation" for about a year, I got impatient waiting to buy her's and used Photoshop to create my own. This ended up being better because I could choose my own fonts and colors...and it was free.
I have a future project in mind that involves more ancestral photos, barn wood, chicken wire, and clothespins. I'm excited to build and share that later, but in the meantime, it will wait as item number fifty-seven on my to-do list.
But this reminds me...I am going to eventually need help (pretty please?) from some photo bearing family relatives (Dad? Rhonda? Grandma?) getting scans to represent all the branches of our family tree.
Anyway...this room does not completely satisfy me yet. But it is coming together piece by piece. And I love my homemade Proclamation print!
